UM2 - from original gear to MK7 - which settings?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

i've modded my UM2 with a Reprap Bulldog feeder (link to my post in the german section), original UM2 stepper motor.

For that i've changed the original gear with a MK7 gear.

The MK7 gear ist bigger than the original:

original scope: 25,13mm

MK7 scope: 34,55mm

So with the bigger scope there is more material transportation. Which settings must be changed - flow, filament diameter, e stepping?

For now i've changed the material flow on the UM2 to 95%, which seems to be quite good.

Thanks

Marcus

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
